Aujourd'hui, ma Maman m'a dit " Je te retranscris mot pour mot ce que dit la quatrième épreuve des 12 travaux d’Hercule (correspondant à 27 ans, ton âge) : « je dois apprendre à ne pas tout vouloir ou tout avoir. Je dois me distancier du toujours plus et accueillir les temps de non action ou de non faire. Je dois accepter mes justes besoins et reconnaître ceux des autres et la douceur du vivant... c’est grâce à cette maîtrise que je percevrais le caractère vain de l’hyperactivité et que je comprendrais qu’il ne faut pas perdre sa vie à vouloir la gagner »... Ces mots résonnent en moi, comme une leçon de vie à ne jamais oublier et me fait penser à l'un de mes mots préférés : RESILIENCE. #resilience#courage#12travaux#hercule#leçon#lifegoal#inspiration#truewords
Diet builds the resilience we need to live life to the fullest. We often look to genetic, environmental and psychological factors for coping with adversity. Diet is a hugely underestimated component starting at the molecular level where cells are protected from trauma by a host of antioxidants, fats and proteins that only come from eating real food.

I've been having strange dreams the past few nights but last night was by far the weirdest 😕 and disturbing, not gonna lie. In fact, I was reluctant to look up the meaning because all of the other dreams have been so positive but I Googled it and found this definition: You are maturing and leaving your own childhood behind.
That makes a lot of sense but that damn message didn't have to be so emotional 😣
The outcome of my dream was happy because the kid was returned so I'm guessing this releasing of attachment to my childhood is a healthy part of my journey. Obvi 😃 It's funny, things have changed so quickly for me in the past month and I've felt catapulted into another ascension of this path I'm on. I do feel myself transforming once again into another version of myself, a more adult version 😞 that seems strange to me because I never really thought of myself as "grown up." 2017 has been filled with challenges and lessons but it sure feels like I'm about to burst out of a cocoon and resurrect once again from the ashes.
Dreams are never random, there's always a reason and a message. Do you remember your dreams?
"After the plane crash,how did you find me?" I told her "You found me." I then told her the story of how she had given her name and my phone number to the people that rescued her. Her eyes opened wide as she listened. I then veered off to talk about what my Mom said about Kechi having so much love for me to be able to remember to give such information at a time she was more dead than alive. -excerpt from Refined for Rebirth by author @ijeduru a compilation of 5 journals in her daughter's @kechi_agt recovery
Some essential skills our children need to develop for the technological world they will live in are mostly feminine traits like empathy, receptivity, intuition.
They are the key to #creativity and #innovation
Thank you @happydaysfactory for the inspiring photo!
Tip of the Day 🌞 Develop an endless curiosity about this world. Become an explorer and view the world as your jungle. Stop and observe all of the little things as completely unique events. Try new things. Get out of your comfort zone and try to experience as many different environments and sensations as possible. This world has so much to offer, so why not take advantage of it?
So grateful that I found @beccaleepoetry her exquisite poetry and writings resonate deeply, leaving me touched moved and inspired. .
This on in particular resonates with me at the moment. I like many other women I know are in the midst of a major transformation, in metamorphosis, surrendering to the chaos that is all a part of releasing, letting go, shedding old habits, beliefs and ways of being that do not serve our highest selves. .
I have been through many things so far in this life all preparing me for this moment, for all that I am traveling through now but here is the thing...I am not a puddle on the floor, I am not hanging my head meekly surrendering to the circumstances! .
I am instead looking at all that is being stripped away with EXCITEMENT, for I know that what is taking its place is pure potential, pure possibility and unbridled freedom! .
I have walked through chaos many times in my life and yet here I am still standing, still moving, still growing. Stronger, more prepared for the next chapter, embracing life, learning to be more and more in my truth. I will not just Endure, I will rise up and stand in my power!

#loveyourbodychallenge @thegirlsgonestrong Today's mantra: " I am capable of _________..." I know this to be true because I already had a beautiful positive empowering birth experience. I can have another one.

last night Toshi Reagon sang, drowning people sometimes fight their rescuers. I said fuck.//what lessons are you meant to learn here? which emotional muscles need to stretch? you are waveform 🌊🌊🌊.
Still working on this.
Autumn is bittersweet.
With its long walks, hot cups of coffee, the smells of baking, and visits with old friends.
Things I once took for granted...and can no longer do.
Hope and gratitude have not abandoned me; they cling tightly, and are usually victorious. But some days...many days, I see their laughter...and their freedom...the carefree smile of the healthy as they welcome another season in their lives, and just simply go about their day. And I wish.
Just for a moment.

Children are children, with complete dependence on us as adults. The idea that a child can move through some of the most destructive situations, and become healthy, normal functioning adults, is insane. Then, perhaps the most unfortunate part is, those that become adults and respond to their past negatively by committing offenses against others, are held accountable and punished...yet NEVER CARED for as far as how they became these people. Because no one seems to care about what happened to you when you were a child, now that you’re an adult and responsible for making better decisions. Yes we all have the power to heal... however, the less pain you inflict on a child, due to your own life, the better they are for it. Therefore, you be responsible for your thoughts/actions, you get some help, you be resilient! This was inspired by a play DEATH ROW and a new show on Netflix Mindhunter. #children#love#lifecoach#resilience#healing#therapy#help

this is the way to practice resilience: to outsmart memory by remaining hopeful and open, even if you just want to stay home and hide forever. Of course, you have to learn from your scars but don't use them as evidence that you shouldn't try again.
And yes, Doc Mike cleared me for low impact boxing every other day at my own pace. Fifteen (15) days out of the OR for a spinal fusion (titanium on transplanted bone, 4 bolts L5/S1)
I want to do so much more! But I wish to heal so I can go back harder. Thanks Coach Vernon from this older veteran.
Happy to have put on almost 2lbs.
And yo yo yo, during my struggle, my down days and cycling back up, @hollowrockph was allowing me to perform better. I would take any edge for this.

One more night away from being “on my own” on the unit and I cannot measure how much I have grown and learned among my ICU team. This experience has been priceless and I am thrilled to be working my dream job. Mom was right when she said that my experiences were getting me strong enough for this future. ❤️😷💪🏻 #icunurse#criticalcarenurse#postgradlife#nightshift#resilience#strength
Presenting ASSAR research at the University of Namibia Joint Faculty Conference - 'Practical Research Towards Sustainable Economic Growth and Social Development.'
How does climate change affect Namibia's development pathway? How might the most vulnerable groups, and those with the least agency, adapt to the impacts of climate variability and change? What are the barriers to and enablers of effective, sustained and widespread adaptation out to the 2030's?.....These are some of the questions that I'll be tackling this afternoon 🤓
There's always time for tea. In fact, it's in those moments we tell ourselves we don't have time that we need a break the most. Am I the only one who's noticed that when I push myself and demand more of myself than I have to give, I make more mistakes? I feel more overwhelmed and frustrated? I'm more grumpy? And, inevitably, I end up having to fix what I've goofed up. Instead of getting ahead, I fall even more behind. We can either schedule regular "tea" times, or we can learn to recognize when we need a break and give ourselves permission to take one. It's not about tea, it's about honoring your needs.
